Whole Wheat Apple Spice Bread

First and foremost, I would like to announce the grand opening of my Etsy Shop (called Bicycle Built for Two)! I have been working on headbands for about two weeks now and am so excited to finally be able to share them all with you. If you would like to purchase a headband, or even design a custom one, visit my shop and I will work with you to make the perfect headband for you or a little girl in your life! Here are some of my most recent creations for sale now:

Now it's time for a recipe! I absolutely love the apple spice cake mix at Trader Joe's. Since spring/summer is quickly approaching and anything spiced will unfortunately disappear from the grocery store shelves, I figured it was time to try and re-create a recipe similar. I adapted the recipe from Smitten Kitchen, a wonderful blog. This is what I came up with... (Click on the picture above for more recipes on my blog!) 

Ingredients:
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup of butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 chopped cooking apples (I used Granny Smith)

-Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a bread pan, muffin pan or a mini loaf pan as I did! -Mix together the flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, nutmeg and set aside. -In a separate bowl, mix the yogurt, butter and sugars together. Once they are beaten together well, mix in the egg. -Stir the dry ingredients into the wet and mix for about 2 minutes (do not over mix). Add in the small pieces of chopped apples and stir again with a large spoon. -Pour into greased pan and bake for 15-17 minutes for muffins and mini-loafs or 30-40 minutes for a large loaf of bread.

They turned out great-surprisingly very similar to the Trader Joe's version. However I must admit that I still love how easy it is to simply buy a mix and add an egg or two then bake! At least now I will always have this recipe when I am craving apple spiced bread in the middle of the summer (I'm sure it will happen one day).
